I have been a nurse since 2004 and the privilege to care for numerous patients. I’m also a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Nurse Specialist with over 10 years of experience working in a variety of mental health settings. When I was 18 I started studying psychology and still find human behavior fascinating. I have had the privilege to serve on active duty in the U.S. Navy for over 21 years now. I have run numerous marathons, and I am passionate about traveling and I am an animal lover. Above all else I value my Faith and close relationships with many good friends and family. San Diego, CA is my home.
